Summary

This staged scene of Spanish soldiers executing Cuban prisoners was designed to underscore Spanish brutality and support American intervention in the war. According to one catalog description, "The Spanish officer, resplendent in gold lace and buttons, raises his sword. One can imagine his commands by his gestures. 'Aim!' 'Fire!' and four poor fellows have joined the ranks of martyrs for the cause of Cuba Libre."
